Every week, Supercluster recaps the biggest stories in space exploration.

On this edition: SpaceX launches the first 60 of its experimental broadband satellites atop a reusable Falcon 9 rocket. Elon Musk explains that Starlink's thousands of satellites will provide high-speed internet service to underserved areas, and provide competitively priced internet for the broader market.

SpaceX believes that Starlink has the potential to make billions in revenue for the company, and will help fund their ultimate vision of building a human settlement on Mars. View Supercluster's photos from the launch below.

Also on this week's podcast, NASA continues its citizen engagement effort by allowing fans to send their names to the red planet aboard the Mars 2020 rover. And in human spaceflight, an announcement from NASA helps set a course for a return to the moon.
